YEAH!!!! I made it through the surgery & am home. Actually I came home around 2:30 yeaterday. I am doing really well. No pain, just a little discomfort. My left side is really tight. Guess that the stiches on the port. But I can live with that. Just glad I don't have to take the pain medications. When they weighed me at the hospital my weight loss was 17 lbs. Great start. I'm wondering how Im going to do Christmas day. Bet I can make.
